95b) ∑ of beam stiffnesses meeting at joint B The indices b and c stand for beam and column, respectively, and the indices A and B stand for joints A and B, respectively. 21). 22). The first example is a frame where sway is not allowed and the second example is a frame where sway is allowed. 22a, where sway is assumed to be prevented. The deflected shape of the frame is assumed as illustrated by the dashed lines. 96) The index c stands for column. 97) The index b stands for beam. 21 Alignment charts: (a) braced system and (b) unbraced system.

For instance, the critical load of a system can be determined by the slope-deflection equations or a second-order analysis. On the other hand, the value of the K factor can be assessed with the aid of the alignment charts that are derived from the slope-deflection method. 2 Alignment Charts The alignment charts have been developed by Julian and Lawrence (1959) for a simplified assessment of the K factor. 20 are used for a system that is braced against side sway and an unbraced system. In both models, the following assumptions are adopted: 1.
